ACC spring meetings underway
By ESPN.com staff
The ACC's football coaches are meeting from 7:30-11:30 a.m. Monday morning at the ACC's annual spring meetings at the posh Ritz-Carlton resort on Amelia Island, Fla.
And, yes, they'll be talking about the upcoming TV contract, and they'll be asked about the possibility of expansion in college football, among other things.
About half of their time this morning will be spent on informational reports, including yearly reports from ESPN, Raycom, ISP Radio, BCS, the ACC championship game and ACC Hall of Champions.
The other half of time will be solely group discussion on topics the coaches submit, including an early signing date (it comes up ever year), staff sizing proposals from the AFCA (they talked about inflated staffs last year) and whatever else they wish to talk about (how much they love the ACC blog, I'm sure).
On Tuesday, the coaches will have time to meet with the athletic directors and also to meet with coordinator of officials Doug Rhoads to speak about officiating. I'll post or link to whatever news develops this week, with the TV contract being at the forefront of discussions. Stay tuned.
